DFDS takes the consequences from Russia’s food embargo

DFDS shipping company takes the drastic decline in food volume as a reason to stop the Lübeck-Klaipeda service

The Danish shipping company DFDS temporarily stops its Lübeck-Klaipeda service effective immediately. The service had been launched in June. The company had been serving this route with two weekly departures lately.

The management says the reason to take this step was Russia’s food embargo, which has led to a drastic drop in shipment volumes. However the location in Lübeck shall be kept, the office was not to be closed.

Dr. Sebastian Jürgen, CEO Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH, states: „The performance had been alright, however, under the given political conditions we did not succeed to establish an additional service to Russia. The remaining Russian services are stable nevertheless.“

Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH operates Germany’s largest Baltic Seaport. At their four port terminals they offer highly frequent seaway services in the Baltic Sea region. The loading units are bundled and linked with the hinterland by efficient systems. LHG is a reliable partner of the paper and automotive industry.
